Fingerprint recognition

Fingerprint is one form of biometrics used to identify individuals and confirm their identity. The automated method of verifying a comparison of two human fingerprints is referred as fingerprint recognition or fingerprint authentication. By far, fingerprint recognition is one of the most used biometric authentication method.

Unlike other biometrics, fingerprint recognition offers ease of use and acceptance. It also provides greater efficiency and reliability as each individual has distinct fingerprints (including twins) due to unique papillary features. In addition, the fingerprints remain unchanged throughout the entire adult life.

Three major types of fingerprint scanners namely, capacitive, sweep and optical are used to capture fingerprint details.

Capacitive scanners are very affordable but less durable. Also, the quality of fingerprint images captured by these scanners is of poor quality.

Optical scanners are the most reliable ones as fingerprint images are of the highest quality. Also, they are very durable, cost-effective and easy to use.

Sweep (thermal) scanners are better than capacitive ones but are not easy to use. This is because a person has to apply a consistent speed and manner of applying a finger in order to get successfully identified.
